I just got my new 80 gig iPod. It's great, but MAN I hate going to USB. It is SOOOOO slow! I just don't understand why Apple got rid of firewire support for the new iPods. It takes forever to transfer 3000+ songs onto my iPod. I have no idea how long it's going to take a movie! Anyway, just wanted to throw my opinion out there. I know USB 2.0 is supposed to be faster on paper, but when used it's not. I fell in love with the firewire when I bought my 3rd gen iPod and going to USB is rough.
